The University of Idaho seeks to build on our strength in mathematical, statistical, and computational modeling by adding up to six new tenure-track faculty. We will hire outstanding researchers who use diverse modeling skills to address public health challenges along the continuum from pathogen dynamics at the human-wildlife interface, to emerging disease prediction and prevention, to rural health disparities. Hires will be at the assistant or associate professor level, and research pairs or teams are encouraged to apply. This is a cross-institutional initiative with departmental appointments based on the specialty areas of the successful candidates. Although all types of modeling and data science will be considered, we are particularly interested in individuals with expertise in epidemiology, artificial intelligence / machine learning, molecular modeling, data analytics and visualization, mathematical and statistical modeling, and geospatial modeling.
